Driving, Walking, Sightseeing in Mendocino
We didn't do much during our 3-day 2-night stay in Mendocino. We drove around town and neighboring towns, walked to see the sights, went on photo walks, smelled the fresh air.
Watching the scenery while driving up and down Highway 1.
I love this road as it undulates before one's eyes.
Many bed and breakfasts and inns and hotels line the length of Highway 1.
You cannot avoid the coastal views. They are breathtaking no matter where you stand.
See how beautiful?
There are also many campgrounds nearby. We were curious about this one.
Saw this beautiful scene at the campground, except that it was for campers and not tent camping, at least we didn't see any tents only campers.
I went closer to the water here at the Big River Beach, part of the Mendocino Headlands State Park.
There are many countless hiking spots in the area, but we chose the easy way to walk by visiting the Point Cabrillo Lighthouse station.
The path to the lighthouse was paved. From the parking lot it was about easy 1 mile walk I believe.
However, we came late in the pm and the lighthouse was closing. We ended up just admiring the lighthouse from a foggy distance.
